When I read the overview for this game I was excited. But I feel totally lied to. The last line especially! "Play through the touching storyline, and decide - will you choose love, or your love for music?"
Touching storyline? The storyline is bland and typical. Your a girl who wants to play in a band. You join a band as a replacement and they decide to keep you. To progress the game you play stages with different songs all the way to the very last level. THAT'S IT.
And what's with that "...will you choose love, or your love for music?" There is no such choice in the game. There isn't even the slightest hint of romance! Sure you can dress up your characters, but it's not like it gives you a bonus to style or affects your story any. It's just to let you play dress up.
The music is OK, nothing to get excited over, just sounds like a midi file. This game would only appeal to those who are excited about the rhythm based game play. But don't get it thinking it'll be a cute date sim with music. This game is only about playing music.
It's about a guitar playing girl named Mai. She dreams of entering this big music contest called Rockin' Pretty. But she has to be in a band to enter. Her friend Ken has a little sister named Kara. (I think.) Kara is in a band called Starlight with her friends Mio and Reena. Mai meets Kara for the first time and Kara drags Mai into the band. So after meeting Reena and Mio and showing them how great a guitar Mai is they decide to enter RP and rock it out! (RP stands for Rockin' Pretty!) So the game is VERY VERY short! But it's fun. And I do like the storyline! See Mai plays the guitar, Kara plays the bass, Mio plays the keyboard, and Renna plays the drums. You just tap the lines or circles or whatever when you need to. So are you ready to rock Rockin' Pretty?
